The data is in the computer and can be easily printed
Hi, I’m Anthony Clyne.
Welcome to this TXM Lean minute.
This Lean Minute explains how to use data that is in the computer and talk about it every day in stand up meetings.
The challenge is to understand the data, know what is says, know why, and share the discussion in the daily meeting.
At TXM we have established the Lean Daily Leadership Process to help leader’s setup daily meetings that use the Visual Management Board to standardise the agenda, and in turn the conversation.
A simple thing to do is pick the critical information and hand write it on a boards.
As the information is looked up there is a process of checking happening at the same time. This gives the person looking up the data some time to quickly investigate and check the reason why.
Avoid printing out a report and pinning it to the wall.
The meeting needs to be quick and concise and focus on recognising good performance, identifying gaps, and planning actions.
Printed reports cause meetings to go for too long as they spend the allocated time to discovering and clarifying the data and then there is no time left to discuss what to do.
Meetings that interpret data prior and then are discussed with knowledge are far more effective.
Stop displaying printed daily reports to discuss in meetings. Insist on the key data being written down prior to the meeting.
